Warren Throckmorton, the blogger who first “exposed” (whined about) the League of the South connection to the conference we reported on below, is surprisingly a Professor at the conservative Christian Grove City College. Grove City has long been a favorite among conservatives because it, like Hillsdale College, does not accept federal financial aid.
I’m sure people will say that Professor Throckmorton has academic freedom, and that’s fine. I’m not suggesting that Grove City College should fire him or silence him. But political correctness is the mortal enemy of both conservatism and Christianity. I find it odd that this is where this guy teaches instead of Berkley or Harvard or somewhere else you would more expect to see such lefty politically correct moral posturing. I just wonder what the chances are that we’ll get a statement from Grove City distancing themselves from Professor Throckmorton’s left-wing empowering hobby of doing the $PLC’s dirty work for them. Lehigh University issued a statement disassociating themselves from the work of Intelligent Design advocate Michael Behe. California State University, Long Beach officially distanced itself from Kevin McDonald. I don’t think it is asking too much to suggest that Grove City should similarly distance itself from someone who propagates the openly anti-conservative and anti-Christian dogma of political correctness.
